    Cool 83 Dated PASGT

    haven't been doing much in the way of collecting lately but i have been on the look out for another PASGT with woodland cover & this one came up last week for 45 so i snapped it up

    its a a size medium 83 dated GENTEX i think this is the earliest dated PASGT i have so far.

    Wonderful pick! Theres something in the helmet shape that sticks out, at least for me. It looks like it has a much higher profile than other PASGT helmets I have seen, or then Im just seeing things

    im with you on the look of these helmets there is just something about them, i don't think theres any difference in shape from other PASGT maybe its the lighting ?

    Nice lid Nick. Nice price too! Where do you find these?
    I'm in the market for one, and I'm looking for a nice early one (I don't have a clue about these!)
    Now I know what to look for.
    Thanks mate!

    very nice pasgt nick one of my favorites of the modern us composites ,i too agree with poromies the front dome shape looks different ,maybe a helmet band will define the shape a bit more ,would you mind if i added my example just to compare profiles and covers ive never posted mine on this forum before apart from my cookie dough version regards jamesClick image for larger version.

    its probably because of the way the cover stretches over the front i don't think its had a helmet band on it ?

    I think it may be the vertical lighter splash on the cover doing this in the profile shot. It makes it look a little taller.
